We are a family owned and operated ranch. Jane is a life-long Alaskan, originally from Anchorage, has lived in Fairbanks for more than 35 years. Doug, originally from Portland, Oregon moved to Fairbanks in 1978. Our three children, Neill, Robin, and Anya are now college students and beyond who enjoy living in Alaska as well. We purchased our five-acre parcel and home and moved out to the Goldstream Valley, north of Fairbanks, in 2004. Shortly afterward we began shaping the land to suit our needs and fulfill our dreams. We love gardening, animals and being outdoors. A visit to our ranch is a visit to a true Alaskan family and we invite you to be our guest for a unique Alaskan experience in the beautiful Goldstream Valley.
Running Reindeer Ranch began its life as a 4-H project and evolved into a business in 2010. Now Reindeer LLC we take pride in providing quality, unique experiences for our guests.
April 2018, we start our new journey. After purchasing our neighboring property and house we will have more trails and better accommodations for our guests. Watch our Facebook page as we evolve and change.
“Offhand, to be honest, I was not expecting much. Perhaps some penned up sad reindeer that wandered for the entertainment of humans. Nope!” from TripAdvisor
“Jane – I cannot say enough about her. She just has such a love of the land and a love, respect and deep understanding of those reindeer. Her talk is so completely engaging, full of anecdotes and sweet humor.” from Facebook
